Stream/Buy: 9th Wonder - Bladey Mae (The Beat Tape)

You can stream ten tracks but if you purchase you get a whole lot more: 73 in total. 9th!

"This past weekend, I met my grandma, Beulah Mae Jarrett Douthit's family (my dad's mother) for the first time. My grandma passed in 1965, so I've had no connection to her at all. I listened to the elders talk about her all day. One elder in particular, her oldest niece, who's 78-years-old, told me that her nickname was 'Bladey Mae', because of the blades she carried around in the purse and pockets, to protect her children from a segregated South, one of them being my dad. I was looking for a name for a new beat tape, and that one just came out of nowhere.

Here's to you Beulah Mae Jarrett Douthit and the blades you carried to protect pops......'Bladey Mae'..." - 9th Wonder

Says the producer/emcee about his upcoming instrumental record:

"The Beauty In All is about the flaws & mistakes that give life its character and worth - how even ignorance can give light to knowledge. For me, not knowing how to do something & still trying is a process that helped my production style evolve. If everything we are is out in perfect tutorials, we might never deviate from the teacher. This record is dedicated to imperfection and the sense of pride & accomplishment we get from our struggles. Hopefully, you listen to this record, reflect on the ups & downs of life, and see The Beauty In All."

The Beauty In All is coming soon.
